Hey Tightwads! How’s your October going? Will a batch of free movies make it better? Whether it will or not, here’s one anyway.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is a 2012 action horror flick that, just as the title suggests, reimagines the 16th president of the United States of America as a vampire hunter. In between navigating the Civil War and freeing the slaves, Honest Abe must protect the country against a greater, more bloodsucking theat.
It’s a bummer that this movie did not launch an entire franchise of Lincoln monster movies. Just imagine FrankenLincoln or Abraham Lycan. All we got was this and the Asylum rip Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies. Nevertheless, this is a fun, tongue-in-cheek vampire slaying flick with some incredible action sequences. Check out Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter right here at Crackle.
Cheap Thrills is about a man who, after just losing his job, goes to a local pub to drown his sorrows with an old friend. They meet a rich couple there that offers them money to perform “dares.” The tasks start off easy, like pounding a shot or slapping the waitress’ ass. But as the night goes on, the amount of money involved rises and the dares get more villainous.
This 2013 offering is a creative and economical little thriller. It’s also darkly comedic. Pat Healy and Ethan Embry play the two friends, and David Koechner and Sara Paxton portray the wealthy couple. Have a look at Cheap Thrills here at TubiTV.
Isabelle is about a young couple that moves into an upscale neighborhood with dreams of starting a family. Their plan is derailed when they discover that their new home comes with a malevolent spirit that wants to take over their lives.
Made in 2018, Isabelle owes a debt of gratitude to classic family horror flicks like Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist. Of course, it’s not of the same quality as those two films, but it’s plenty creepy enough to inspire a few sleepless nights. See Isabelle for yourself here at Vudu.
With the death of Robert Forster this weekend, it’s a good time to watch Alligator. This 1980 classic creature feature is about a pet alligator that is flushed into the sewer system where it grows to an enormous size while feasting on the remains of pharmaceutical test animals.
Alligator is one of the better Jaws rip-offs, and it’s still an absolute must-watch. Forster is essentially the Chief Brody character in the film. Famous animal movie director Lewis Teague (Cujo/Cat’s Eye) was behind the camera for this one. You can see Alligator here at YouTube, but act fast, because links like this tend to expire quickly after the passing of the stars.
All the Colors of Giallo
All The Colors of Giallo is a 2019 documentary about, well, the giallo subgenre of horror filmmaking. Through archival footage and new interviews, the movie features appearances from horror heroes like Dario Argento, Umberto Lenzi, Lamberto Bava, and Lucio Fulci.
This is a must-watch for giallo fans. It’s packed full of insightful and revelatory information. If you love giallo, you can (and should) watch All the Colors of Giallo here at TubiTV.
